All eyes are in the sky as the remnants of the Chinese missile are on the verge of collapse on Saturday or Sunday 9 May somewhere on this planet. Item 20 tonsA Long March missile, launched on April 29 from Hainan Island, China, crashes uncontrollably in its trajectory. In fact, the risks are very limited as the machine could malfunction but it is closely monitored.

The US Space Command announced, Wednesday, May 5, that it is closely following the trajectory of this rocket as it gradually approaches the Earth’s atmosphere. The thrower, after placing a future Chinese spacecraft unit in orbit, began to descend to Earth along an uncontrolled trajectory. Nobody knows where or when the missile fell. We have no plans to destroy the missile at this stageHe said US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin. Hope it falls somewhere that does not harm anyone, like the ocean. In any case, this shows that for people who work in space, there is or has to be a commitment to work safely, thoughtfully and with all of that in mind.

In May 2020, parts of another Longue-Marche missile crashed in Côte d’Ivoire and landed on buildings, causing no fatalities. If Washington is following all this closely, it is also because the Americans and the Chinese are competing to reclaim the moon, and the unexpected adventures of these Chinese missiles are helping the United States.

This massive rocket segment, which weighs more than 20 tons, is scheduled to land this weekend. Nicholas Bubrensky, head of engineering and innovation at the European Space Agency’s European Space Operations Center in Germany, believes Europe should be avoided. As it stands, re-entry can occur anywhere on Earth between -41 ° and +41 ° latitude. On It leaves the entire northern part of Europe safe, like France or Germany, but it still leaves a fairly wide area, Franceinfo warns. On It could affect southern China and everything above the equator: India, Vietnam, Laos, Singapore, and Iran. It may even apply to all of Africa.
